Brass FX is an ensemble formed of outstanding Australian brass and percussion players who perform music which is new, exciting and uplifting. The players are proficient in musical styles covering jazz, swing and the classics and are all soloists in their own right.
For this, its debut album, Brass FX is joined by the world’s most celebrated jazz multi-instrumentalist, James Morrison, and the world’s most exciting young trombone player, Peter Moore.
James Morrison is, by any standard, a virtuoso in the true sense of the word.Widely known for his trumpet playing, he also performs on soprano, alto, tenor and baritone saxophones, clarinet, flugel horn, bass trumpet, trombone, euphonium, tuba, string bass, guitar and piano.
Peter Moore, the youngest ever winner of the BBC Young Musician of The Year competition in 2008 at the age of just 12, is now in much demand as a trombone soloist, performing across Europe with some of the world's most celebrated orchestras. He has twice toured Australia with outstanding success and on completing a tour of the Far East with the London Symphony Orchestra, was appointed as its Co-Principal Trombone, an incredible achievement for an 18 year old.
